Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to find the status of a range of services.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to find the status of a range of services that have an initial letter that
           does not begin with V through Z?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use Get-Service with the –Exclude parameter, and supply a wildcard character set that represents
